NFL free agency rumors: QB Sam Bradford to sign with Cardinals

With primary target Kirk Cousins off the market, the Cardinals moved to Plan B — as in Bradford at quarterback.

Sam Bradford will sign with Arizona when the new league year begins Wednesday, ESPN.com reported, citing an unidentified source.

Because of the knee injury, Bradford wasn’t even able to return to practice until January but surely will have to pass a physical, if he hasn’t already, for the Cardinals.

In 80 NFL games since 2010 with the Rams, Eagles and Vikings, Bradford has completed 1,805 of 2,887 passes (62.5 percent) for 19,049 and 101 touchdowns with 57 interceptions. He missed all of the 2014 season with a knee injury.

The con of getting Butler would be more limited funds to upgrade the offense in free agency. Going a little lower here, the Rams’ Trumaine Johnson and the Redskins’ Bashaud Breeland are two solid options for the Bears’ scheme. The Bills’ E.J. Gaines and the Giants’ Ross Cockrell are sleepers to watch should they hit the market.

The Bears might not go big at corner because the offensive needs, but that doesn’t mean they can’t afford to go back home with little to nothing in free agency.

The venerable Packers wide receiver is the most notable, shocking cut so far, trumping the Dolphins’ decision to part ways with Ndamukong Suh. Rodgers moves on with recently extended Davante Adams and Graham as his go-to guys, but it’s sad to see Nelson leave.

Rodgers should be looking at all these QB contracts, led by those of Garoppolo and Cousins, and knowing he’ll get his relative discount contract double-checked again by the Packers. Martin, the best Cheap Authentic Hockey Jerseys guard in the league, becomes a free agent in 2019. After what Norwell got, Martin should already hear all that cha-chinging coming out of Jerry Jones’ cash register.

Landry is the game’s ultimate high-volume possession receiver. He’s more of a reliable Cheap Baseball Jerseys extension of a running game and short-area scorer than he is a gamebreaker, but he’s very good in his niche role.

“I think with [Clippers owner] Steve Ballmer and [president of basketball operations and head coach] Doc [Rivers] and [executive vice president of basketball operations] Lawrence [Frank], all the way down, in the end I realized this is a no-brainer for me.

He has been plagued by injuries over the last three seasons, including knee and toe injuries that caused him to miss time this past season. Griffin said Wednesday he has seen five foot specialists and should be ready for training camp.

Griffin averaged 21.6 points, 8.1 rebounds and 4.9 assists in 61 games last season. In 471 career games (all starts), the 6-10 forward from Oklahoma has averaged of 21.5 points, 9.4 rebounds and 4.1 assists.

“Our goals haven’t changed, and the fact that we brought Blake back is a big day for us,” Rivers said. “But the messaging for me, more importantly than anything, is, ‘I want to be a Clipper.’ That is one of the things, when we all came here, we want that.”

To put this in title terms, Sports Illustrated’s Ben Golliver compared the offensive and defensive efficiency numbers for the Cavs and other 2017 contenders to NBA champions from the Cheap Authentic Hockey Jerseys past decade.
